Sketch Saturday # 69, Simon Says Stamp, Anyone For Anya....Baby it's Cold outside!

Hey crafty friends! I have another card to share with you this weekend! I really should be doing laundry and packing, as I am going away on a work conference on Tuesday and won't be back 'til Friday evening! Guess where I'm London...well, it sounds exciting but I'm just going to London Ontario, he, he, he, but I wish it was London England then I could visit some of my BG DT gal pals, smile!
I'm still very excited though cuz it's not too far from Kraftin' Kimmie and we just might take a road trip to one of her favourite stampin' and scrapbookin' stores Scrappin' Great Deals...I'm looking forward to it! I plan on bringing my Copics, some images, and my Ott light with me and colouring at night in my hotel room...hope my roomy doesn't mind,smile!

Well, I made this card today for 3 challenges....Saturday Sketchers #69 they have another fab sketch this week and did you see that I won last week's challenge...whoot whoot...25 buckaroos for Simon Says Stamp on-line store...that should get me a couple more Tildas ha, ha, ha! I also made this card for the challenge at the Simon Says Challenge blog they have a recipe this week...2 papers, 3 embellies and 1 image and for the Anyone for Anya? challenge...I finally got to join in with this new challenge blog and I am so excited to as I need to use my sweet Anyas more often than I do!

I made my cardbase 6x6 from red Bazzill Basics cardstock and used my new BoBunny 'Tis the Season paper that I bought at the Bella Boutique on Friday! Isn't it YUM-O...just love it!!! Now, I hope I still qualify for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge, as I know the recipe called for two papers and it looks like I have used 3 different patterns, but I am being tricky cuz the papers are double-sided, so, technically I did only use 2 papers, smirk! Ya know what they say, rules are made to be broken, lol! The challenge over at Anyone for Anya? is Funky I picked these frosted Primas from my stash and inked them with Distress inks as I saw the super talented Kim do on her beautiful card! The Snow flakes are QK punched from DCWV Glitter stack paper I added some buttons and Scrappers floss to make my embellies! the ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is a Melissa Frances rub-on!

I stamped Anya on my ATS Copic paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and coloured her with my Copics! I gave her a red ribbon in her hair and I used my Sakura Glaze pen to make the band of her ear muffs and the buttons on her coat and boots a little glossy! I also used my Sakura Stardust pen for some glitter here and there!
Here are the Copic colours I used for Anya:
Skin:E000, E00, E02, E21, R20
Hair:E30, E42, E34, E55, E39
Scarf & Ear Muffs:B000, B00, B95, B7
Coat:R17, R27, R46 Fur Trim:B0000
Socks:YG63, YG67
Boots:E30, E31, E34 Ground:E30, E34
Background:BG0000 & Colourless blender

and this is the inside....oh look I used my new Catslife Press label stamps...I first saw these great stamps on Kathy's blog and I just love 'em! Susan at Catslife is so sweet and she has great customer service!
Well, Thanks for stopping by and having a wee look-see! I don't think I will be posting again until I get back from the conference! Hope you all have a great week!
